iTrainerMini - instant feedback, instant improvements
April 11, 2012

Building on the success of the original iTrainer, the revolutionary training aid that provides instant feedback on the golf swing, sports technology company Insight has developed the new and improved iTrainerMini, a smaller version of its big brother.

Discarding the screen, speaker and buttons of the original, iTrainerMini weighs in at a lightweight and highly-portable 15g, having negligible impact on the golf swing. It simply clamps on to the club shaft just below the grip and is able to accurately measure and analyse your swing characteristics, whether you are swinging a driver, iron or putter.

iTrainerMini produces the same intelligence as the iTrainer, but unlike its big brother is designed to work with external devices like a golfer's smartphone or tablet running the iConsole application or iAcademyLite for the PC.By using state-of-the-art accelerometers and gyroscopes, the iTrainerMini gives a direct, accurate reading of how and where the club is moving and so provides you with instant data on multiple aspects of your swing.

Immediate feedback on Swing Plane and Tempo analysis from the iTrainerMini is sent via Bluetooth to the iConsoleII app on any Android device such as smartphones, watches and tablet computers.

This information helps improve your swing plane, control club head speed and correctly position the club face angle at impact and so immediately adapt and correct any imperfections in your swing.

The iConsoleII app, which can be downloaded from the Android market, displays video and digital capture of the golf swing in real time and features:

• Club Head Speed
• Tempo Ratio of back and downswing speeds
• Club Path and Face Angle at Impact graphics
• Swing Plane graphics
• Spin Rates
• Vertical and Horizontal launch angles
• Trajectory, Distance and Deviation estimation in numeric and graphic display
• Benchmark to compare current swing against your ideal swing.
• Statistics including, Average, Range and Trend data stored for improvement tracking

Working alongside the iTrainerMini and the original iTrainer is My Personal Golf Trainer, which offers drills by internationally-respected coach, David Leadbetter, which can be viewed at

The iTrainerMini, including the iConsoleII, is priced at £125.

Golfers wishing to try out the iTrainerMini will find it exhibiting at the world’s leading interactive golf show, Golf LIVE at the London Golf Club from May 18 to 20.

Insight also has future applications in the pipeline that will include the Swing Plane in 3D, Swing Plane and Tempo training drills and position of the Club Face Angle at specific points of the swing as well as Putting, Chipping and Pitching Drills whilst an iPhone and other smartphone applications for the iTrainerMini will follow shortly.

All data collected by the iTrainerMini is recorded and can easily be transferred to a computer for further analysis back home or in the training studio. Software updates and additional training and analysis modules for the iTrainerMini can be downloaded via the Internet.

One of the most exciting capabilities of the iTrainerMini is its ability to measure the carry distance immediately after hitting the shot in practice. This is extremely valuable for club fitting, indoor range practice and distance training, particularly for approach shots.

Insight also offers the iAcademy designed specifically for coaches and training centres. This version comes with advanced PC analysis software to allow golf professionals to perform visual and comparative analysis of their students’ swings. The iAcademy works best in an environment where the output can be projected onto a screen in front of the golfer for instant viewing, especially when training, as this allows the player to immediately see where and when a problem is occurring.
